May 3, 2007: Why Don't We Care About This Celebrity Trial?
Why don't we care about the Phil Spector murder trial?
It has all the requisite elements that usually make us celebri-spiral; money, drugs, sex, fame. And yet, it's not stimulating a fractional level of interest that the Robert Blake trial spurred a few years ago.
Are we just a fickle, celebrity-driven culture that doesn't even understand why it picks and chooses which celeb-travails to obsess over? The answer is obvious.
Sorry, Phil. If there was a Court TV version of American Idol (Court Idol?), you'd be voted off.
